On 9 December at a mini-market in Brest the police detained Valiantsin Lazarenka and Zinaida Mikhniuk, activists of the local independent trade unions. They handed out invitations to the authorized meeting scheduled for 10 December.

The detainees were guarded to Brest district police department. At present they are kept there without any reports being drawn. The police officers said they were checking whether the invitations contained any prohibited information.

Thus, the Belarusian authorities have already started celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in their own way.
